Thanx Mendrix, that helps. All I know is that Swordfishtrombone is where he began drifting into the more Captain Beefheart side of experimental rock/jazz. And Heartattack and Vine was the case for a lawsuit involving the Screamin Jay Hawkins cover...but Screamin Jay is another great artist that requires a totally different conversation. Thanx again

I'm a huge Tom Waits fan and no collection should be w/out RAIN DOGS.

If you like Swordfishtrombones you'll love Rain Dogs; they're very similar.

I would also recommend SMALL CHANGE for weird ballads like he Piano has been dribking and the classic Step Right Up which really shows off his scatting/improv skills.

Tom Waits is a gem!
